Brighton v Albion match preview

8 September 2017

UNBEATEN in the Premier League, through to the next round of the Carabao Cup and now preparing for a trip to Brighton. Here's everything you need to know as the Baggies ready themselves for their first visit to the Amex Stadium.

The opposition  

Brighton and Hove Albion won promotion to the Premier League for the first time under manager Chris Hughton last season.

After losing 2-0 to Manchester City on the opening day of the season and going down at Leicester by the same scoreline a week later, the Seagulls recorded their first point of the campaign with a 0-0 draw at Watford before the international break.

It was a busy summer transfer window down on the South Coast as Brighton brought in a whole host of new signings, including the likes of Ezequiel Schelotto, Matthew Ryan, Jose Izquierdo and Davy Propper.

Last time out 

The last competitive meeting between the two sides was back in April 1993 when the Baggies recorded a 3-1 win over Brighton in a Division Two game at The Hawthorns.

Stats

Albion

  • Seven points from the opening three games is the Baggies’ best start to a Premier League season since the 2012/13 campaign.
  • Albion’s last win away at Brighton was back in April 1990. Goals from Tony Ford, Don Goodman and Gary Bannister helped Brian Talbot’s team to a 3-0 victory.
  • Tony Pulis’ team have scored in each of their last five away games in all competitions.

Jay Rodriguez bags his first Hawthorns goal last time out

Brighton

  • Hughton’s team are yet to score a Premier League goal and have the fourth lowest shot tally at just 27 from their three matches.
  • Dale Stephens is tied with Jay Rodriguez at the top of the ‘fouls committed’ tally on 10 each so far this season.
  • Brighton players have been caught offside the most out of any in the Premier League apart from Arsenal, who they are level with on 13 each.

Match Reports

Brighton 3 Albion 1

9 September 2017

ALBION were beaten 3-1 by Brighton at a sodden Amex Stadium on Saturday.

James Morrison's first goal of the season was not enough for the Baggies who had gone 3-0 down after a double from Pascal Gross and a near-post header from Tomer Hemed.

With just under 15 minutes on the clock, Shane Duffy had the ball in the net for Brighton but his close-range effort was ruled out for offside. 

Seven minutes before the break Gareth Barry went close to opening the scoring for Albion when his powerful shot from the edge of the box had to be tipped over by Mathew Ryan.

It wasn’t until the end of the first half that the home side went in front as Solly March’s cross from the left was brought down by Gross and drilled into the goal via a deflection.

And the Brighton frontman bagged his second just after half time, firing beyond Ben Foster from the edge of the area.

Chris Hughton’s side then went three up on 63 minutes as Hemed directed Gross’ cross off the near post and into the back of the net.

Albion managed to pull a goal back on 77 minutes through substitute Morrison after he squeezed his shot over the line following a clever Oliver Burke knock-down.

Morrison had a chance to get his second of the afternoon late on but Brighton stood firm to get the win.

ALBION: Foster; Dawson, Evans (c), Hegazi (Gibbs 57), Nyom; Barry, Krychowiak, Livermore (Morrison 71); Phillips, Rodriguez, Rondon (Burke 57).
